Louisiana House Reaches Common Core Compromise

Published May 27, 2015

Lawmakers in the Louisiana House of Representatives came to a compromise on Common Core, according to an Associated Press report. Two separate bills have garnered support from the House as well as Gov. Bobby Jindal.

The first bill would require a review of Common Core math and English standards. The second bill would stop the use of assessments developed by the Partnership for Assessment of College and Careers (PARCC) and next year’s tests can consist of a maximum of 49 percent PARCC test questions. The bills passed in the House with votes of 99-0 and 99-1.
